THE Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after a snake was found in a Carstairs lay-by.
The snake is now in the care of the Scottish SPCA’s Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Hamilton, where he has been named Roy after the cyclist who found him.
Animal Rescue Officer Gavin Law said, “Roy was spotted on the grass beside the lay-by.
“He may be a stray but I think it’s more likely he was abandoned as there aren’t many houses nearby.”
